The Home Depot is the United States’ fourth largest retailer. Did you know that the first Home Depot stores were filled with mostly empty boxes? When they were fired from their manager positions at a hardware store in 1978, Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank made the decision to open their own discount, bulk hardware store. The first few stores were up to 60,000 square feet but they didn't have enough inventory to fill the warehouses, so they used empty boxes and paint cans to make the space seem full. Marcus and Blank also sped around the stores after hours on forklifts to create skid marks in the hopes of making the stores seem even more like warehouses.
